Diabetes teaching resource for school staff

The Starship Diabetes team have developed a short 30 minute video as an educational resource for schools to increase their knowledge about the management of children/young people with diabetes in the school setting.

Returning to school following a diagnosis of diabetes can be an anxious time for both families and school staff. Successfully managing a child/young person's diabetes while they are at school involves understanding what diabetes is, how it is managed, and putting together a plan so that a child/young person can be safely supported to participate fully in school life. Information on school action and management plans can be found here.
